Use the conceptual frameworks in your area of study to develop the analytical and critical capacities you need to apply to the contemporary issues facing your chosen field. Choose one of the three advanced 12-month Diplomas available. These advanced programs enable you to gain practical skills that can be applied through internships and placements.
Graduate Diploma in Publishing and Communications (Advanced)
Understanding technology and research skills are key components in this course, including subjects in Structural Editing and Editorial English, which develop your writing and critical skills. Build on your foundations with electives ranging from publishing and communications to technical writing. You can also complete an internship to gain practical industry experience before you graduate.
Graduate Diploma in Arts and Cultural Management (Advanced)
Niche subjects like Arts Management or Arts Policy and Issues prepare you for work in a diverse Arts industry. This may be within large organisations, government departments, or self-employment. Other electives, like Interpreting Exhibitions, Indigenous Photography or Cultural Studies in Asia, develop an understanding and appreciation of the Arts.
Graduate Diploma in Journalism (Advanced)
This Diploma is associated with the already established Master of Journalism. Four core compulsory subjects will develop your critical and technical skills, while a number of journalism-related electives build on this skillset. Together, these subjects represent integral journalistic skills and understandings, with opportunities to study a limited number of advanced subjects.
